Representing CalHiSports.com at Saturday night’s St. John Bosco vs. Corona Centennial game played at Cerritos College was photographer Scott Kurtz, who also spoke to junior quarterback Josh Rosen and sophomore running back Sean McGrew. Rosen threw for five touchdowns, but McGrew stole the spotlight by accounting for 400 yards and scoring seven times in the wild-and-wacky 70-49 victory.
“He was just ridiculous tonight,” Rosen said of McGrew. “We knew coming into the game it was going to be a high scoring game and didn’t care who scored, just so we won. I didn’t take care of my job 100 percent in the passing game and I’ll take responsibility for that. I missed a lot of opportunities. We would like to throw more but the coaches need more confidence in us.”
McGrew himself was of course quick to mention his blockers.
“I credit my O-line,” he said. “There were so many long touchdown runs, after the third one, I started to get tired and needed a little rest after each one.”
Looking ahead to next week’s titanic matchup with De La Salle of Concord, which has won four straight CIF Open Division titles, Rosen said: “it’s the last game of the season and we don’t want to end the season on a loss like last year. It was too crushing. we will put it all on the field because there’s nothing to save for. It should be a fun game.”
Scott also wanted to make sure our audience knows that when McGrew was getting interviewed, head coach Jason Negro came over and messed up his hair, letting everyone around know that he’s only a sophomore.
